HOUSTON, Dec. 1, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Eagle Ford Oil & Gas Corp. (OTC Bulletin Board :ECCE ) announced that it has signed a letter of intent for the acquisition of a 25% non-operated working interest in 5,990 acre lease position in Borden County, Texas. Currently there are plans to drill two wells to test the productivity of the producing zones during the first quarter of 2011. The property has two oil producing formations: the Mississippian Fractured Carbonates and the prolific Wolfberry Formation. The Mississippian well is designed as a tri-lateral horizontal and the Wolfberry well will use multi-stage fracturing techniques to maximize estimated ultimate recoveries. This acreage position will support thirty-seven additional locations.

We expect the development of this Borden County Play to greatly enhance our growth potential over the next few years. "
